Supported Holidays

The front of Nutley Edge, an eighteenth century farmhouse where Outward's supported holidays for adults with learning disabilities and autism take place.

Supported holidays for adults with learning disabilities and autism

Originally a working farm, Nutley Edge is now a tranquil rural holiday complex nestled against the historic Ashdown Forest.

When you join us on one of our supported holidays for adults with learning disabilities or autism, you’ll have five days to explore our 11-acre grounds, get to know your fellow guests, or take part in varied activities led by local experts. We’ll also take you on day trips to some of the best attractions South East England has to offer.

Every supported holiday has a different theme, so you can choose a break with activities you love. You’ll be with people who have similar hobbies and interests, which is a fantastic way to make new friends. Our themes include pampering, arts and crafts, sports, and more!

As a charity, our aim is to keep our supported holidays financially accessible, so we do what we can to keep prices low and quality high. Starting at only £1085, our all-inclusive pricing means everything is taken care of from the moment you arrive at our London pick-up point, to the moment you return home. Just bring your spending money. Adventure and relaxation awaits!


Take advantage of our refer-a-friend scheme! 

Already a devoted Nutley Edge fan? When you bring along a friend who has never been on one of our Nutley Edge supported holidays before, you can get £50 off your next break! Just ask them to state who referred them on our booking enquiry form.

Unforgettable guest experiences

We pride ourselves on offering unforgettable supported holidays for all of our guests. Here’s what Myah had to say about her holiday last year…

“I believe that Outward have employed the best activity team because the compassion and care they showed to us was better than I have ever seen before. They gave me the acceptance of anxiety disorders to believe and achieve. To me, acceptance is more important than any other medicine. Nutley Edge will be my new home from home.”
